I have the subject line problem going on with my MacPro Xeon. It is about two years old. It has to do with text edit.app. My 'puter is slowed to a crawl and I do not know how to fix it. I have used the disc utility, both Verify and Repair and it cannot repair it. This is only the second problem I have had with the Mac and am wondering how to deal with it. I have not experienced an I/O problem with this computer and I can't figure out what I did to cause it as I use the computer for my photography business and email. I thought it might be a virus but doubt that. My reason for thinking this is my son came by and went on his G Mail and Facebook accounts about the time that this started. Any suggestions?

That is "text edit", not test edit in the subject line

Why have you cross posted this again?

You have a discussion in the Mac OS X forum.


Multiple threads on the same subjects results in posters having to read & reply twice and gets frustrating very quickly.
